One of the biggest contributors to wilting and aging in vegetables (especially leafy greens) is loss of moisture. The air in your refrigerator tends to be very dry so higher moisture things like Kale, Spinach, or Lettuce are best stored in high moisture places like a Crisper/Vegetable bin. If your refrigerator is not equipped with a crisper/vegetable bin then we recommend that you use a container with some holes or openings to minimize the moisture loss and wilting. Just make sure that they have a slight opening to allow the oxygen to penetrate. You can also use a wet paper towel, sponge, or mist to add moisture.
NO, the Fridge Fresh® unit transforms the inside of your refrigerator to an oxygen-rich environment that allows fruits and vegetables to stay fresh in their natural state for several days longer than normal, without the use of plastic bags, plastics wraps or bulky food storage containers. Therefore, there is no need to fuss with traditional plastic bags or containers to store your fresh produce. With our Fridge Fresh® device on the top shelf of your refrigerator, simply place your fruits and vegetables on the shelves of your fridge, or in the appropriate bins, and store them in their natural state just as you find them at a produce stand or at the grocery store.
*However, leafy vegetables such as Kale, Spinach, and Lettuce are high moisture vegetables and therefore benefit more from humid environments such as your vegetable bin/crisper. If your refrigerator is not equipped with a vegetable bin/crisper, we suggest you place your leafy vegetables in a container or bin with holes, or they can be placed on a plate covered with a moist paper towel. You may also mist as needed.
YES, the crisper bins and drawers in your refrigerator are not airtight, therefore the activated oxygen easily reaches everywhere inside the refrigerator. The produce you place in your bins and drawers will benefit from the powerful effects of activated oxygen, as long as they are not kept in plastic bags or containers that would inhibit the flow of the activated oxygen. For this reason, it’s best to store your produce in your refrigerator the same way you would find them at the grocery store or at a produce stand at the farmer’s market.
Several things determine just how long your food stays fresh, including what type of food you’ve purchased and the condition it was in when you bought it. When you use Fridge Fresh® you can expect some foods to remain fresh for days longer, and some (like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries) may even stay fresh for weeks. Of course, these aren’t the only benefits you’ll enjoy. Fridge Fresh® also neutralizes odors while fighting refrigerator mold and bacteria. Those are results you can see – and smell – every day of the week.
YES, we offer a full one-year warranty on the Fridge Fresh® refrigerator appliance. If for some reason you experience a problem with the product, simply contact us and we’ll be happy to help. We’ll even replace your unit free of charge. We are confident with the quality of our product and we don’t expect you to have any problems. We’ve only ever seen one unit break at headquarters – and that was because it was run over by a delivery truck!
We have taken great efforts in our development to ensure that our device is compact enough to go unnoticed in the back of your refrigerator, yet powerful enough to be extremely effective in removing the pollutants that cause food to spoil prematurely and cause unpleasant fridge odors. The exact dimensions of our Fridge Fresh® refrigerator appliance measures 5w x 2.5d x 5.2h inches and weighs a lightweight 9.1 ounces.
YES, Fridge Fresh® is perfectly safe for household use. In June of 2001, the FDA approved O3 for use as an antimicrobial agent for direct contact with foods, food storage and processing. O3 is used to treat air and water in many important applications to help purify our environment and promote better health. As Fridge Fresh® releases the O3 and the oxidation process occurs, the O3 instantly converts back to pure oxygen, O2. Since the O3 does not accumulate inside your refrigerator, Fridge Fresh® is not able to produce unhealthy or toxic levels of O3 that would be harmful.
The BerryBreeze®Fridge Freshener keeps your food fresh naturally while working to address our society’s food waste and pollution problem. Other products use toxic chemicals and even carcinogens to help extend the life of your food.
BerryBreeze® is the only product on the market to use a superior patented technology that produces activated oxygen. Activated oxygen is nature’s way of cleaning the air and removing toxins and pollution from the environment, and we use it because it neutralizes ethylene gas while fighting germs, mildew, refrigerator mold and other harmful microbes in your fridge. Unlike other products, the technology behind the BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener has been thoroughly researched and tested, and that makes it a proven way to keep food fresh, safe and delicious for much longer than you can with refrigeration alone.
Best of all, we do it all without the need for absorption packs or disposable filters, so you won’t have to put any time, energy or extra money into maintaining your BerryBreeze®.
If our present experience is any indication, forever. Okay, we’re exaggerating of course, but we do have units at headquarters that are still going strong after five years of use, and they don’t show signs of tapping out any time soon. When you create a product that’s built around the laws of nature, it’s a product that’s built to last.

In more ways than one. First, we take a natural approach to every product we create. We strive to avoid chemical ingredients, and we don’t use unnatural processing methods and production systems that deplete resources or damage the environment. We also help you do your part by providing goods that make health and environmental stewardship easy.
Take our Fridge Freshener, for example. Americans waste over 33 million tons of food every year, and discarded food is the single largest contributor to methane emission pollution in the United States. If we could all reduce our food waste, we’d change the world. Because the BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener extends the lifespan of the foods in your fridge, you’ll ultimately cut down on food waste, and that means fewer grocery bags, product packages and receipts. You’ll also waste less fuel — and because stores won’t have to ship and restock products quite so often, you’ll help grocery chains do the same.
Cutting food waste would also save lives. Americans waste around 40% percent of all their edible food. Yet somewhere in the world, a person dies of hunger every 3.6 seconds, and over seven million people die of hunger every year. By saving just 15% of the food that Americans waste, we could feed over 25 million people per year. That’s sounds like the start of a solution to the world hunger problem.
There’s another way in which BerryBreeze® can help save lives. The CDC estimates that foodborne pathogens sicken one in six Americans annually. That’s 48 million people, and 3,000 of them die every year as the result of the diseases they’ve contracted. BerryBreeze® fights “sick refrigerator syndrome” by neutralizing common refrigerator pathogens, and that makes it a useful tool in the battle against food-borne illnesses. Clean refrigerator technology has the ability to help save millions of dollars in hospital bills and countless lives across the globe. Who knew something as simple as using a BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener could impact the environment in so many ways?
The science is complex, but the concept is simple. The BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener sanitizes the air in your refrigerator through the use of activated oxygen, a powerful natural oxidizing agent that reacts with surface molecules on bacteria and mold. It also neutralizes ethylene, a gas which speeds up the ripening and rotting of foods. The result is a clean environment that preserves the nutritional value of your fruits, vegetables and other foods while postponing spoilage and decay. BerryBreeze® allows you to waste less food, and when you prevent food waste, you’ll send far less garbage to the landfill over the course of a year.
You won’t have to worry about outlets and extension cords when you use the BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener. All the unit requires is a fresh set of batteries, and since the power drain is so low, those batteries will last for a long time before they need to be replaced. We are supporters of environmental stewardship, after all, and being energy efficient is a big part of that. There are also no filters or absorption packs to clean or replace, so you don’t have to worry about maintaining your BerryBreeze®. It does all the work for you.
You’ll even save fuel, because you’ll make fewer trips to the grocery store, and you’ll indirectly help stores do the same. After all, when people waste less food, stores don’t need to restock quite so often.
Yes! We believe strongly in the powers of the BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener, but our business doesn’t stand on belief alone. Research shows that the BerryBreeze® Fridge Freshener works. In fact, an independent study conducted by R&D Enterprises proved that our product is “very effective” at eliminating strong food odors and that it successfully keeps food fresh longer, thereby preventing spoilage and reducing food waste.
